I LOVE this article (Ad)! Especially the first few sentences. It appears as if more people are FINALLY starting to notice that 12 Step is NOT the only or best way to treat addictions.
"Prominence Treatment Center is now offering personalized and unique treatments for those that would like to steer clear of catch-all therapy programs."
"Due to the ongoing coverage of celebrity deaths that involve drug or alcohol abuse, many of those that are struggling with their own addictions have begun exploring what options may be available to them. This first step is always daunting though, and many individuals may be uncomfortable joining a cookie-cutter program that may not exactly fit their own needs and concerns. This is why Non 12 step rehab center, Prominence Treatment Center, is now offering its services to anyone that would like a unique and personalized strategy to beat their own addiction."
About Prominence Treatment Center (from their website):
"We know that each person is as unique as their addiction, and we develop an individualized treatment plan with that in mind."
"We believe that anyone who is abusing drugs or alcohol is doing so because it fits a purpose in their lives at this time. We believe that in order to cure emotional pain, addicts use and abuse drugs or alcohol as medicine. We aim to address the underlying issues that may have caused one to self-medicate. By addressing these issues, we are able to help each individual change their thought process toward any and all negative behaviors. By changing their thought process, we believe individuals, who in the past would harm themselves through drug or alcohol abuse, can find new and healthier ways of coping."
"At Prominence Treatment Center we believe that once individuals understand the underlying causes of their addiction, they will then make healthier life CHOICES." "Choices" in caps = My emphaiss
